I have come across a rather unusual stem.
The square section which is straight on most stems I have seen is twisted on the one.
I have attached a picture of the square section and hope some one can explain its use.
I do not think it is a manufacturing defect, but?

Hi Mel,
That's correct, no idea of why its like that, I remember the first one I seen I wondered if the customer had forced the crown so hard it had twisted it.

I actually straighten it but I must have gone too far the other way!
